The Icons of Bennelong – Chefs of the House

An exclusive menu of Bennelong classics, including suckling pig sausage rolls, Black Angus beef with truffle purée, and the iconic Pavlova

During August, four of Australia’s leading chefs will curate and host Chefs of the House: a series of dinners in one of the Sydney Opera House’s most exclusive, hidden spaces.

Bennelong, with Executive Chef Peter Gilmore, will present The Icons of Bennelong, a culinary experience featuring an exclusive menu of classic, beloved Bennelong dishes through the years, from opening night through to current day.

On the evening, Peter Gilmore will welcome guests on arrival and introduce the thoughtfully crafted menu and paired wines that draw on the relationships with local farms and producers, while visual projections and a live jazz performance complements the unique theme in this intimate shared-table dining experience.
